Eades' blog turned me on to this new 'product'. Maybe I'm naive, but is there enough ignorance out there that the market for this type of stuff is growing?

"Chick-fil-a's Cookies and Cream Milkshake has 790 calories, 300 calories from fat, 33g total fat, 18g saturated fat, .5g trans fat 95mg cholesterol, 660mg sodium, 111g carbohydrates, 1g fiber, and 100g sugars."

"“The Mint Cookies and Cream Milkshake is just plain fun,” said Woody Faulk, Chick-fil-A’s vice president of brand development. “Following last year’s highly successful rollout of Hand-Spun Milkshakes, we wanted to let our customers know that we appreciate their enthusiastic support of the shakes – and that we have a few surprises in store for them!”

As dr. Eades says, I wonder if the surprises include diabetes, CHD etc.

check out this link, it's to a story of Hardee's Monster Thickburger. it has 1,420 calories.

work safe, family safe. not safe for your health if you eat it.

Jason, the first step is admitting you have a problem :-)

Do you know how many 95 lb thrusters equal a monster burger? Honestly, it would be interesting if anyone could calculate the number of typical WODs it would take to equal the energy in a typical fast food meal, in terms of enery.

In an interview on CNBC, Hardee's chief executive Andrew Puzder was unapologetic, saying the company's latest sandwich is "not a burger for tree-huggers."

Key words: not a burger for tree huggers. Sounds good to me :puke0000:
...not

LOL that is a pretty funny quote. I doubt many people stay away from big burgers because they are against logging.

james,

it'd probably be easy to figure out how much work (force*distance) would equal the energy contained in a monster thickburger.

i don't know how you would figure out the calories that crossfit burns AFTER exercise. i'm no exercise scientist. : )

The performance menu has a calculator for that
